Must-have summer accessories with Laura Ashley

Wednesday 4 July 2018

Finally, summer is here and I for one love summertime fashion. The beautiful prints, the flowing materials and the most amazing accessories imaginable – summer is all about looking and feeling your best. Today I'll be styling up my must-have summer accessories from Laura Ashley. From bold and beautiful bags to dainty jewellery, dreamy scarves and cool blouses, this is your go-to guide for getting your summer look just right with the perfect accessories.

I adore dressing myself to match up with the seasons – pastels in the spring, earthy tones in the summer, rustic in the autumn and so on. These pieces from Laura Ashley will team with any of the seasons, as all of their garments are incredibly versatile and easy to wear. 

My must-have summer accessories from Laura Ashley are bold, versatile and classic – they will remain in your closet for years to come and they will serve you well.

Handbags are one of my favourite accessories – they complete an outfit while ensuring it's teamed together and rounded off nicely. I'm really loving Laura Ashley's cutwork style accessories as they add a modern twist on a classic garment. Their Tan Cutwork Grab Bag (RRP £45) is perfect for summer, especially if you're off to a wedding, event or popping out for a coffee. Holding your daily essentials, this small and convenient grab bag that can go across you with ease, sit nicely on your shoulder of sit on the crook of your arm, this bag is really a must-have for this summer. 

If you're looking for a bag with a little more room and longer straps, then the Red Cutwork Shopper Bag (RRP £45) might suit you better. In a stunning bold red shade, this beautiful shopper can fit a decent amount of essentials, including a beach towel – so if you're heading down to the beach, you know this bag can be used with the utmost ease. It sits on your shoulder comfortably and looks classic and stylish. There is also a matching purse, the Red Double Zip Cutwork Purse (RRP £22). The purse is roomy, crafted beautifully and looks amazing when used alongside the matching shopper – this duo is definitely another summer must-have of mine. Especially as I rarely leave the house without a red nail and lip combo!

Elegant jewellery is another way of accessorising for summer. Although I'm a lover of statement jewellery, I do adore muted and classic jewellery too. A duo that goes perfectly with any ensemble is the Flower Charm Bracelet (RRP £14), and the Sterling Silver Diamante Flower Stud Earrings (RRP £15). These two gorgeous pieces teamed together look absolutely stunning, although not necessarily crafted as a duo, they team beautifully together. The small studs sparkle beautifully when the light catches them, and the charm bracelet looks far more expensive than it's recommended retail price.

I really do adore scarves, they can be used and styled in a multitude of different ways, and that's what makes them so special. From silk to wool, viscose to cotton – there's a type of scarf for everybody, every occasion and every outfit. My two current favourites are the Yellow Buttercup Silk Square Scarf (RRP £38), and the Mix and Match Floral Square Scarf (RRP £25). The Yellow Buttercup Silk Scarf is stunning, and looks amazing with most light toned outfits – it's super soft so can be worn around your next with ease, or even tied into a bag (which is one of my favourite ways of adding vintage accent to any outfit). The Mix and Match Floral Scarf is in a beautiful poppy red, which teams so well with the above mentioned red shopper and purse – I love wearing it around my neck, draped over my shoulders, as a belt or tied neatly onto a bag.

Teamed with all of the above accessories are two beautiful blouse by Laura Ashley, each of them from their Archives collection. A collection which uses vintage prints from their archives to create classic new styles with a modern twist. I'm wearing the Linen Floral Toile Print Tie Neck Blouse (RRP £65), and the Floral Lace Detail Tunic (RRP £70). Both blouses have the most stunning prints, gorgeous fits and amazing detailing. I adore each blouse so much as they team with so many gorgeous accessories and look amazing with a pair of jeans or smart trousers.
